One of the seven co operative principles t hat Clay Electric is bound by is Concern for Community. The Clay Electric Founda tion is a 501(c)3 or ganization set up to r epresent the mem bers of Clay Electric a nd the funds collect ed through Operation R ound Up for chari table purposes. T he mission of the Foundation is to dis tribute money collect ed from Clay Electric m embers through Operation Round Up to worthwhile, chari table and education al purposes that will i mprove lives and respond to immedi ate needs within the c ounties where the cooperative provides electric service. In an effort to im prove the lives of m embers, Clay Elec tric implemented Op eration Round Up in O ctober 2016. Oper ation Round Up is a p rogram to generate and collect voluntary donations that are used to benet orga nizations in Clay Elec trics service area for t he purpose of improv ing the quality of life o f their members and their communities. This year Feed the Need of Putnam County, Inc. applied for the Operation Round Up grant. The Clay Electric Foundation awarded Feed t he Need of Putnam County, Inc. a $15,000 check to help the food insecure children in Putnam County. Feed the Need of Putnam County, Inc.s purpose is to focus on food insecure children in our community and to provide nutritious meals over the week ends for these chil dren. F eed the Need of Putnam County is a non-prot that is a 100 percent volun teer-based program, w hich exists to end childhood hunger over the weekends in Putnam County, by providing nourishing meals over the week end to more than 850 children. They also educate the community on the statistics of food in security in Putnam C ounty, as well as educate how others can help through our program to help these children. Did you know that 62 percent of Americas teachers regularly see children who come to school hungry, because they are not getting enough food to eat at home?

A 29-year-old Interlachen man was arrested and charged with possession of a weapon by a convicted felon and a third-fel ony for causing cruel p ain and suffering for shooting a neighbors dog near his Volusia Drive residence in Interlachen. Deputies responded to a complaint involv ing a Great Dane shot i n the roadway and found Ashley Sanford, 28, holding a handgun. Hackney initially told deputies she shot the dog because it was ag gressive. W itnesses told depu ties Justin Ross Sutton s hot the dog, not San ford. Sutton and San ford admitted Sutton s hot the dog. Sutton is a convicted felon and is not permitted to have or use a rearm or ammu nition. S utton told deputies the Great Dane acted aggressively toward his dog. Sutton said he shot over the Great Danes head to scare it, but may have accidentally shot the dog. During the investiga tion, deputies found dog t racks in the roadway, not on the suspects property and the dog was found collapsed a few feet away from the tracks. Putnam County Ani mal Control personnel a rrived and took the dog to a veterinarian for treatment. During this time, deputies said the dog showed no signs of aggression, even when placed in a kennel. The veterinarian treating the Great Dane said based on the bullet trajectory, the dog was running away when shot. The bullet was removed and the dog is currently paralyzed. The Great Dane re mains under the treat ment of a veterinarian a nd healing will take two to four weeks to de termine if he will recov er from his injuries. S utton was arrest ed and taken to the P utnam County Jail. He was held on $50,000 bond. At the time of publica tion Sutton was still be ing held in the Putnam C ounty Jail.

I knew things were going to be interesting in my class of five-year-olds at church when Brittany came in. She looked like a walking storm cloud. Is something wrong, Brittany? I asked. She let out an elongated gasp. Do I look like a baby to you? she asked. No, I replied. Why do you ask? Because my family calls me the baby, and Im sick of it. Well, you are the youngest in the family, I said. And thats why I want a baby brother, Brittany said. Ive talked to my mother about it a thousand times, but she wont listen. I had played Santa for our community the Christmas before. Brittany had asked me for a baby brother then, and Brittanys mother scolded her for it. Have you told your family you dont like it? I asked. She nodded. Mom and Dad try hard to remember not to say it, but my brother says it even more just to make me mad. If I dont get a baby brother, Im about ready to run away from home. Kaylee raised her hand, so I called on her. Where do babies come from, anyway? she asked. Thats not a topic I wanted to address, so I said, Maybe you should ask your parents. Daddy, dont you know? my little daughter asked. That felt like a strange question coming from my own child, and I didnt know what to say. I know, I know, David said excitedly. I saw a movie where a stork brought the baby. Thats stupid, Brittany said. A stork isnt big enough to carry a baby. My daddy told me that you find a wishing star and wish on it, Leanna said. Then you have to be patient for nine months until the baby is delivered to the hospital so you can pick it up. Kind of like slow shipping on Amazon, huh? I asked. Leanna nodded. Really slow shipping. I saw a baby horse born, Tyler said. It came right out of the momma horse, and it was yucky. I asked my dad how it got in there, and he said the momma horse must have swallowed a baby horse seed. Brittany snorted with disgust. Your dad must not know, either. There are no such things as horse seeds, and there definitely arent any babybrother seeds. I decided it was time to get back to the lesson, but no matter how I tried, everything came back to how a baby is born. David mentioned that he saw a chicken come out of an egg. Susan said her cat had nine kittens all at once. Why dont people have nine babies all at once? Susan asked. Because the parents would like a little sleep, I replied. They didnt realize I was joking, and they continued on about babies while I kept trying to steer the discussion back to the lesson. But one little girl, Maelynn, never said a word. She was very smart and pondered ideas more than the rest. By the look in her eyes, I could see she was deep in thought. Finally, she raised her hand. I know where babies come from, Maelynn said. As smart as she was, I was afraid she just might. But I couldnt stop the train now. Everyone turned to look at Maelynn, knowing that what she said was usually the right answer. My daddy told me that when two people really love each other, they adopt a baby so they can share even more love together. Thats where I came from. It was then that I remembered Maelynn was adopted. The rest of the children accepted that as the absolute truth, and I smiled as they all settled down for the lesson, which just happened to be about the importance of families.

National Library Card Sign-up Month As kids head back to school, theres no better time for them to discover the treasures awaiting them in the local library. September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month! A library card can be a rite of passage for your child, giving them a sense of obligation and responsibility. As a library patron, children learn the importance of caring for things that belong to others. Children take the essential early step in their development when they obtain their library card and become a conscientious member of the community. Visiting your local library also encourages your child to read. Reading helps brain development and provides a solid foundation of the language and literacy skills. Opening a book encourages children to travel to far away places and let their imagination sore. Develop reading as a hobby early and young for every child. Facts About Libraries The worlds oldest running library is the St. Catherines Monastery in the Sinai, Egypt. It was built in the mid-6th century C.E. And, the Vatican houses the most extensive collection of religious material in the world. When the Great Library of Alexandria burned down (circa 640 C.E.) among the great works believed to have been lost was the private collection of Aristotle. The U.S. Library of Congress houses over 150 million items as the worlds largest library. This accomplishment takes up to 830 miles of shelves. In contrast, only one person at a time fits in the worlds smallest library on the streets of New York. The reader can choose from just 40 books. The first recorded librarian was Zenodotus of Ephesus, holding that post from the end of Ptolemy Is reign. He was a Greek grammarian, literary critic, and Homeric scholar. A native of Ephesus and a pupil of Philitas of Cos, he was the first librarian of the Library of Alexandria. He lived during the reigns of the first two Ptolemies. Demetrius of Phalerum put together the central collection for the Library of Alexandria while he was in Greece. He might be considered the originator of the library idea, although this honor should also belong to the first and second kings of the Ptolemaic period. The worlds largest fine for an overdue library book is $345.14, the amount owed at two cents a day for the poetry book Days and Deeds checked out of Kewanee Public Library in Illinois in April 1955 by Emily Canellos-Simms. Although the book was due back April 19, 1955, Emily found it in her mothers house 47 years later and presented the library with a check for overdue fines.

Summit St., Crescent City, FL 32112 or FAX to 386-698-1994, or E-mail to pccjnews@gmail.com Where do Babies Come From?Daris Howard Did that Come From?Seeing Red The color red has many associations heat, heated emotions and violence, communism, a sign of warning (as in traffic lights etc), ripeness (in fruit etc), the col or representing the British Empire on maps and, of course, blood. It is wide ly thought that see red derives from the sport of bull-fighting and the toreadors use of a red cape to deceive the bull. The phrase is known from the early 20th centu ry and so is eas ily pre-dated by the ancient sport, and more to the point, the knowl edge of bull-fight ing parlance in English-speaking countries, which dates from the mid-18th century. That proposed derivation is backed up by the existence of the earlier phrase like a red rag to a bull. This is found in Charlotte Mary Yonges novel The pillars of the house, 1873: Jack will do for himself if he tells Wilmet her eyes are violet; it is like a red rag to a bull. Bulls cant actually see in color and are attracted by the waving of the cloth rather than the redness. That doesnt detract from the red cape theory as the origin of this phrase however. There is an al ternative possible derivation. The phrase may be an adaptation of an earlier American expression to see things red. That is unconnected to bull-fighting and alludes to a state of heightened emotion when the blood rises and we become angry what these days is more often re ferred to as the red mist. The ear liest known exam ple of this is in Jerome K. Jeromes Three men on the bummel, 1900: I began, as the American expres sion is, to see things red. See red itself is found in print the following year. Lucas Malet, the pseudonym of Charles Kingsleys daughter Mary St. Leger Harrison, wrote the romance The history of Sir Richard Calmady in 1901, which in cluded this line: Happily violence is shortlived, only for a very little while do even the gentlest persons see red.

Hi everyone! This is Jose from Troop 957 again. We had so much fun this past weekend! Remember when I told you we were planning to vis it Elder Mullins and go on an adventure with him? Well, it was even better than I expected! With El der Mullins and Brother Corbett get ting together again, you can always ex pect adventure and excitement in the great outdoors! We got up really early and traveled about four hours to get to Central Utah. Some of us have been working with Brother Corbett on his landscape crews in Wyoming to earn money for school clothes. Just so you know, being out west is sure different from being here in Florida! It is not very green. It is a desert! It is very dry and when it gets hot, it feels like you are cooking in an oven. In Florida when it gets hot, it feels like you are in a sauna. Oh, and your skin dries up and itches like crazy! It changes tempera ture in Wyoming a lot. It can be 85 de grees during the day and then at night it drops at least 20 de grees. We got up one day last week to go to work and it was 48 degrees at 6 a.m.! We had to wear jackets in August! I guess thats normal for that area. Im telling you it was lots colder than I expected! Ok, back to the sto ry about our trip. We arrived at Elder Mullins and he was denitely prepared for us! He provided breakfast for us be fore we left on our excursion. Then, we went up this beauti ful canyon and saw some great things. Like the rock slide hill and this washed out area where water had pushed through the canyon and you wondered how it could have been cre ated. The stream had gargantuan rocks in it that were fun to climb. Did you like my use of gargantu an? They were really big. Brother Corbett grew up in Utah so hes used to seeing even bigger rocks than these! Makes you wonder how the mountains and rocks were formed long ago. I think I told you about Dev ils Slide last year and how the geogra phy in that area, in northern Utah, looks like the mountain was pushed up from at ground to stand up straight and thats what made the mountain! The trails were awesome! We did a bunch of explor ing! We found fallen trees and lots of mud and a nice stream that we explored. We met new people from Utah that had been invited to go with us so we had a great time with them too! Our adventure was great. The only prob lem was that it ended far too quickly. We love going camp ing and doing things outdoors! All in all, It was a great ad venture and so won derful to have Elder Mullins and Broth er Corbett with us again.

Native Welakan A Special Person At a time when most Florida r es idents come from just about every where but the Sunshine State, Laurie W arr Browning is a refreshing exception to the rule. Shes not only Flori da born, but a native W elakan as well. Her mothers family, the McLeods, laid the family roots here, moving from Orange Springs, and Laurie has maintained the tradition ever since. Her mother, Nettie McLeod, was active in Welaka activities and was one of the rst pr esidents of the towns Vil lage Improvement Association (VIA). She was an accom plished pianist, playing for both the Episcopal and Meth odist Churches. Her father Edward Warr of Syracuse, New York, was an engineer on the riv erboats between Jacksonville and Sanfor d and later on the Coast Guard cutter USS Taragon which ran from Jacksonville to New Orleans. Laurie herself is also active in the community and has served as W orthy Matron of the Order of Eastern Star, pres ident to the Welaka W omans Club and was appointed by former Governor Le Roy Collins to serve on the District W el fare Board, a posi tion she held for 13 years. These days she occupies her time with grandchildr en Ricky, Cindy, John ny, Cathy and Tom my and nds time to r ead, turn out nee dlepoint creations and collect antiques. Husband Andy is a Newport, Rhode Island native who spent 30 years in the Navy befor e retiring to Welaka. While on active duty the couple lived in Hawaii, Califor nia, Virginia and nally Green Cove Springs befor e making the move to Welaka in 1957. Andy owned and op erated a local television repair business befor e quitting because of health rea sons. Laurie has seen many changes in W elaka in her lifetime, some for the better and some not. Still, its home and the W elaka na tive can think of no better place to live and be with the peo ple she knows and loves.

The way you breathe whether fast or slow, shal low or deep is intricately tied to your body as a whole, sending messag es that affect your mood, your str ess levels and even your immune system. Yet, breathing is unique in that its both easily ignored (becoming a basic back ground of your life) and re vered at the same time. In the latter case, its almost instinctual to advise some one to take a deep breath if theyr e feeling anxious, stressed or fearful. While its long been known that breathing is con nected to your brain and vice versa, it wasnt until early 2017 that r esearchers discovered breathing may dir ectly affect your brain activity, including your state of arousal and higher-order brain func tion. Breathing is initiated by a cluster of neur ons in your brainstem. In an animal study, researchers were attempting to identify different types of neurons, out of a group of nearly 3,000, and identify their role in breathing function. They were focused on the pre-Btzinger complex (or preBtC), which is known as the breathing pacemak er (and has been identi fied in humans as well as mice). The researchers further honed in on 175 neurons in the breathing pacemaker, which they then silenced or essen tially eliminated in the mice, with the expectation that this would alter their br eathing patterns. However, this did not occur. The mice had no changes in their breath ing patterns after the neurons were knocked out, although they did become noticeably mor e chill. It turned out that these neurons positively regulate neurons in a brainstem structure called the locus coeruleus, which is linked to arousal. It is, in other words, the formerly hidden link between breathing rate and emotional state, at least in mice. Different Types of Controlled Breathing Your body breathes au tomatically, but its both an involuntary and a vol untary process. You can alter the speed and the de pth of your breathing for instance, as well as choose to breathe through your mouth or your nose. Whats more, these choices lead to physical changes in your body. Short, slow, steady breathing activates your parasympathetic re sponse while rapid, shallow breathing activates yo ur sympathetic re sponse, which is involved in r eleasing cortisol and other stress hormones. If your goal is to relax, many enjoy pranayama, or yogic breathing, which has been practiced for thou sands of years for pur poses of enhancing health. Pranayama can be done using nostril br eathing (double, single or alter nate), abdominal breath ing or vocalized (chanting) br eathing. Theres also the Buteyko Breathing Method, in which you make a conscious effort to breathe through your nose instead of your mouth. As noted in the journal Breathe, Since the 1990s, a system of breathing ther apy developed within the Russian medical commu nity by Konstantin Pav lovich Buteyko has made its way acr oss several continents: the Buteyko method. K.P. Buteyko be gan treating patients with r espiratory and circulatory diseases using breathing retraining in the 1950s and 1960s. When you stop mouth breathing and learn to bring your breathing vol ume toward normal, you have better oxygenation of your tissues and or gans, including your brain. Fac tors of modern life, including stress and lack of ex ercise, all increase your everyday br eathing. Most people believe that taking bigger breaths through your mouth allows you to take more oxygen into your body, which should make you feel better and more clear-headed. How ever, the opposite actually happens. Deep mouth br eath ing tends to make you f eel light-headed, and this is due to eliminat ing too much CO2 from your lungs, which caus es your blood vessels to constrict. So, the heavier you br eathe, the less oxygen is actually delivered thr oughout your body. In fact, one study that pit ted pranayama breathing against the Buteyko meth od revealed the Buteyko gr oup had better improvement in quality of life and asthma contr ol than the pranayama group. Slow, Deep Breathing Relieves Stress Pranayama breathing in volves three phases: inhalation, retention and exhalation, each of which can have varying lengths and tempos. The middle phase, r etention (Kumbhaka) is said to be an important part of the breathing pro cess and helps enhance the level of vital ener gy in your body. According to a study in the International Journal of Yoga: Slow and deep breathing is efficient as it reduces the ventilation in the dead space of the lungs. Shal low breathing replenishes air only at the base of the lungs in contrast to deep breathing that replenishes the air in all parts of the lung. It decreases the effect of stress and strain on the body by shifting the balance of the autonomic system predominantly to ward the parasympathetic system and improves the physical and mental health. Many r esearchers have found pranayama to be beneficial in treating stress-related disorders The effects of pranayama, when practiced with kum bhaka, are substantial ly more than pranayama practiced alone. The study involved 12 weeks of modified slow breathing exercise in a modified pranayama (al ternate nostril breathing) for m, with equal phases of inspiration, breath holding and exhalation (1-to-1-to-1 ratio). Following the study, and compared to a control group that did not receive any intervention, the slow breathing group had re duced perceived stress and impr oved cardiovascular parameters, such as heart rate and blood pressure. Even in the immediacy, slowing your respirato ry rate to six breaths per minute for a period of five minutes has been shown to significantly r educe blood pressure and result in a small reduction in heart rate. Slow pace bhastrika pra nayama (respiratory rate six/minute) exer cise thus shows a strong tendency to improving the autonom ic nervous system through enhanced activation of the parasympathetic system, researchers explained. Further research pub lished in the Journal of A yurveda and Integrative Medicine suggests yogic breathing may: Modulate cardiovascu lar variables in patients with hypertension and cardiac arrhythmias Relieve symptoms and enhance pulmonary functions in bronchial asthma Enhance mood for pa tients withdrawing from cigar ette smoking Reduce reaction time in specially abled children Manage anxiety and stress in students Modulate pain percep tion I mprove quality of life and sympathetic activity in patients with diabetes Reduce cancer-related symptoms and enhance the antioxidant status of patients undergoing ra diotherapy and chemotherapy for cancer Give These Controlled Breathing Techniques a Try Subtle changes in the way you breathe can lead to significant changes in your body and mind. And different breathing tech niques have the potential to of fer different advan tages to your system. As such, its a good idea to try out a variety and find out which works best for you (or simply rotate through them randomly). One of the most effective breath ing exercises (a Buteyko method) to reduce stress and anxiety does not in volve taking deep breaths at all but rather focus es on small breaths taken through your nose, as follows: 1. T ake a small breath into your nose, followed by a small breath out 2. Then hold your nose for five seconds in or der to hold your breath, and then release your nose to resume breathing 3. Br eathe normally for 10 seconds 4. Repeat the sequence In their r eview of scien tific evidence into the ef fects of controlled, yogic br eathing, the Journal of Ayurveda and Integrative Medicine compiled 1,400 references that involved the yogic breathing prac tices such as the following. Give one, or several, a try today and see if it makes a dif ference for you. Nadi Shodhana/Nadi Shuddhi (Alternate nostril br eathing) With your right thumb, close the right nostril and inhale through your left nostril. Closing the left nostril, ex hale through the right, fol lowing which, inhalation should be done thr ough the right nostril. Closing the right nostril, breath out through your left nos tril. This is one round. The pr ocedure is repeated for the desired number of rounds. Surya Nuloma Viloma (Right uninostril breath ing) Closing the left nos tril, both inhalation and exhalation should be done thr ough your right nostril, without altering the nor mal pace of breathing. Chandra Anuloma Viloma (Left uninostril br eathing) Similar to Surya Nu loma Viloma, breathing is done thr ough your left nostril alone, by closing the right nostril. Surya Bhedana (Right nostril initiated breathing) Closing the left nostril, inhalation should be done through your right nostril. At the end of inhalation, close the right nostril and exhale through the left nostril. This is one round. The procedure is repeated for the desired number of rounds. Ujjayi (Psychic breath) Inhalation and exhalation are done through the nose at a normal pace, with par tial contraction of the glot tis, which produces a light snoring sound. Y ou should be aware of the passage of breath through the throat during the practice. Bhramari (Female hon eybee humming breath) After a full inhalation, closing the ears using the index fingers, you should exhale making a soft hum ming sound similar to that of a female honeybee.After living in Gainesville, Wichi ta Kansas, Alamogor do, New Mexico, Boston Massachusetts, Shanghai, China, and two blocks from Times Square on Manhattan Island, James Williams said hed not seen a his tory of how roads influenced our individual and societal development; so he set out to write one. Four Florida Roads covers the construction and influence of Bella my Road, Tamiami Trail, US 301 and I-95 on the Sunshine State. T aken together, he said, they compose a unique histo ry of Florida. W illiams was featured in a program at the Mel rose Library last Thurs day, with photos and a pr esentation of what hed learned. Born in Gainesville in the 1940s and raised until high school age in Bradford Countys small town of Hampton, hes worked as an administrative sec retary, office manager, a high school and college teacher, theater manager, assistant comptrol ler, and a newspaper editor and writer These days, he does research, travels, writes and calls himself retired. Williams moved from the middle of New York City back to tiny Hamp ton in 2004 to help take car e of his aging moth er. From 2005 to 2014 he worked for Bradfor d County Telegraph newspapers, including the Lake Region Monitor which covers the Key stone Heights and Melrose area. When I was working at the Monitor and T ele graph I wrote a couple of articles about Bella my Road and US 301 in Bradfor d County, Wil liams said. I realized ther e was a whole niche of Floridas historic development that had been lar gely overlooked. He says he drifted into writing the book on four major highways and roads that have been es sential to Floridas iden tity from the early 1800s thr ough 1987. He start ed with the planning and funding of Bellamy Road, or as its called in the wester n part of FloridaThe Pensaco la-St. Augustine Road. His book also traces the history and development of the T amiami Trail in southern Florida, part of US 301 in northern Florida and Interstate 95. The first civilian gov ernor, William Pope Duval, lobbied for Bellamy Road to be built to link the easter n and west ern parts of Florida, W illiams said. In 1823, the US Congress granted $23,000 to Florida to build the first federal r oad in its new territory. In todays money, thats half a million dollars, but was still considered to be a paltry amount to build such a long road way, even back then. Originally, Captain Daniel E. Burch, assis tant quartermaster at Cantonment Clinch in Pensacola, was charged with constructing the approximately four hundred thirty miles of high way. He was assigned only sixty-nine soldiers to work with. After completing the first thirty miles east of Pensacola, Bur ch realized it was too large an undertaking for so small a detachment. The U.S. Congress had stipulated that the road be twenty-five feet wide, but wagons were usually only four feet in width; Burchs commander, General Thomas S. Je sup, told him to narrow the r oad to sixteen feet to speed up construction. Private contractors were solicited; one was accepted to complete the section from Pensacola to the Ochlockonee River, just west of where the seat of gover nment (later named Tallahas see) would be construct ed, Williams said. In 1824, John Jack Bella my, a large plantation owner in what would become Jefferson County, bid $13,000 to build the section fr om Tallahassee to St. Augustine. Congress had spec ified that the eastern r oad should follow the old Spanish Mission Trail, Williams said. John Bellamy also took advantage of naturally occurring features, such as the natural bridge over the Santa Fe Riv er, to make construc tion easier and faster. In Putnam County, the r oad passed through Melrose, then ran par allel to State Road 26, tur ned on CR 219 or another road that no longer exists. It turns east at Putnam Hall, just of f State Road 100. From there it went east past CR 315 and into timber country, Williams said. It be came the dividing line be tween Clay and Putnam Counties and crossed the St. Johns River via a ferry between Bayard Point and Fort Picolata. Its eastern ter minus crossed the San Sebastian River in St. Augustine and ended at todays US 1 and Picolata Road. W illiams book will be available later this fall.

Public health pro fessionals are in the community working to pr otect Floridians and inform them of possible health haz ards caused by blue gr een algae. The department has posted hundreds of signs, sent out mul tiple press releases and have staff in communities every day educating Florid ians. They are also in constant contact with county and city leaders helping to addr ess the needs of communities. Cyanobacteria, com monly called bluegr een algae, are a group of organisms that can live in fresh water, salt water or mixed brackish water These kinds of organisms are naturally occurring in Floridas environ ment and are also found all over the world. Sometimes, blue-gr een algae can produce toxins, known as micro cystin. Not all bluegr een algae produces toxins. Algae blooms are easy to see as many types oat on top of the water and are colorful including green, brown, and red. When blooms are present, the Flor ida Department of Health r ecommends that people avoid these areas. State Toxicologist Dr. Kendra Goff said, It is important that adults, children and pets avoid swimming in or drinking wa ter containing bluegr een algae. It is best not to come in to contact with water in areas where you see foam, scum, or mats of algae on the wa ter. Bur eau of Environ mental Health Scientic Advisor Andrew Reich said, At high levels of expo sure, such as when pets drink untr eated surface water with thick cyanobacteria blooms, cyanotoxins can cause signicant health impacts. How ever, cyanotoxins do not aer osolize to sig nicant amounts and exposur e via inhala tion is not a risk to the general publics health. The Florida Depart ment of Health is in fr equent communi cation with the CDC on issues r elated to harmful algal blooms (HABs) including red tide and blue-green algae, as Florida is a national leader in HAB response. There is limited research into the long-term health impacts from exposures to bluegreen algae. The de partment supports further research and has a long-term part nership with CDC on har mful algal blooms, which has included research. The department will continue its partner ship with CDC to facilitate collaboration and ensur e the most effective, efcient and timely response is carried out.Chronic Wasting Disease, or CWD as its more commonly called, has most re cently been detected in Mississippi. This is the closest the fa tal deer disease has been to our Florida bor der. Were fortunate that CWD has not been found in Flor ida or our imme diate neighboring states. But its go ing to take the help of hunters to keep it that way, said Cory Morea, Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commissions (FWC) Deer Manage ment Program coordinator. Anyone planning to hunt deer moose or elk out of state needs to be aware of certain laws and regulations aimed at preventing CWD from coming into our state. What is CWD? CWD is a transmis sible disease that af fects the brains of infected cervids, such as mule deer, whitetailed deer, moose and elk, eventually causing them to be come emaciated and display unusual be havior and die. It is caused by an abnor mal protein called a prion. While ther es no evidence that CWD can be transmitted to humans or live stock, the impacts of this disease can have a signicant negative impact on deer pop ulations and our tra ditional hunting activities, Morea said. T ransmission of CWD among cervids occurs by direct con tact with an infected deer or by consum ing prions that have been deposited into the envir onment. Once in the environ ment, the prion stays in the soil and can remain infectious for years. To date, CWD has been found in mule deer, white-tailed deer, moose and elk in these 25 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kan sas, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missou ri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New Y ork, North Dako ta, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, T exas, Utah, Virginia, West Vir ginia, Wisconsin and W yoming. It also has been detected in Canada (Saskatch ewan and Alberta), Norway, Finland and in South Kor ea. What is Legal to Bring Back When Hunting Out of State Hunters can help by not bringing CWD back with them when they hunt out of state, and the FWC has adopted rules regulating the trans portation of harvested deer into Florida. Hunters ar e pro hibited from bringing into Florida whole carcasses of any cervid from any of the above listed CWD-positive states or countries. From these areas, hunt ers can only bring back deboned meat, nished taxider my mounts, cleaned skulls, antlers and hides as long as all soft tissue (meat) has been removed. The importation of live deer into Flori da is also prohibited. The public is encour aged to report any possible violations to the FWC by calling the W ildlife Alert Ho tline, toll-free, 888404-FWCC (3922). How You Can Help Another way hunt ers can help is by r eporting deer that are sick or found dead from unknown causes to FWCs tollfree CWD Hotline at 866-CWD-WATCH (293-9282). Warn ing signs that hunt ers can look out for while in the eld include deer that ar e extremely thin or appear sick, or those exhibiting odd behavior such as staggering, walking in circles, standing with a wide stance or head tremors. Do not handle the deer, but simply call the CWD Hotline, and the FWC will collect the whole carcass and conduct an ex amination. Finally, hunters can help by pr oviding samples from their harvested deer. The FWC would like to test more samples from the counties of Baker, Bradford, Brevard, DeSoto, Duval, Flagler, Hard ee, Hillsborough, Lee, Levy, Mana tee, Miami-Dade, Okeechobee, Saraso ta, Seminole, Union and V olusia. Please call the CWD Hotline to coordinate sample collection from your harvested deer. The deers head is need ed for testing, and it may be fr ozen and the antlers/skull cap can be removed. Our goal is to collect samples throughout Flori da, and were asking private landowners and hunting clubs to participate in this r esearch. Since 2002, weve tested over 10,000 hunt er-killed, road-killed and sick/diseased deer for CWD, said Mark Cunningham, FWC state wildlife veterinarian. If youd like to help or see a deer in Florida that ts this descrip tion, contact our tollfr ee CWD Hotline for further information and to coordinate collection and pick up of deer samples. Early detection of CWD is key, and the best chance for erad ication or controlling it is to be able to de tect it and act quickly to pr event its spread. The FWC has an action team and re sponse plan in place should CWD be de tected in Florida. FWC staff is ready to respond along with other government agencies, such as the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Florida De partment of Health, and the Centers for Disease Contr ol and Prevention. Whats the Number to Call? Floridians are our eyes in the woods. If you see a deer that looks sick, unusual ly thin or behaving abnor mally, or if you nd a dead deer from unknown causes, call our toll-free ho tline thats available seven days a week at 866-CWD-W ATCH (293-9282), Cun ningham said. And if your e hunting out of state, know the CWD status of that state and know what you can bring back.
